Biography

‘The Weight Of Your Love’, Editors fourth studio album and the first to feature new members Justin Lockey and Elliott Williams is, according to lead singer and songwriter Tom Smith, ‘a band record, a musical record, a rock record with a foot in that alt-rock / americana world’.

I'll tell you what, Editors seem to have been born in the wrong decade - their sound would have catapulted them to universal ultra-stardom had they been around in the 80s. And The Weight of Your Love sounds like a timeless classic from an era when making an album mean spending money on its production.

Well, I say 'classic' but it's only nearly so - more 'cult classic', since like all other Editors albums there are one or two really cracking tracks that you will listen to for pleasure many years into the future, mixed with a fair amount of wtf is that? type moments.

This record sees the band moving on from the hit-or-miss but nearly always interesting electronics of the previous album and has more of a band feel - think of the better-produced moments of U2, Crowded House, Counting Crows, Echo & The Bunnymen, REM etc - except with that unmistakeable Editors-ness which to me is the perfect mix between baritone depth and style mag surfaceness. Very odd, but always fun.

'The Weight Of Your Love' is the fourth studio album by Editors.

Prior to the release of their 2005 Mercury Prize nominated debut Tom Smith (lead vocalist) et al. had spent three years cultivating an identity to do justice to their bold and captivating sound. Spearheaded by Smith's grandiose vocals the final inception of 'Editors' was to be an anthemic runaway success for Kitchenware Records; follow up records two and three were both chart topping albums in the UK guaranteeing sell-out concerts and headline festival slots.

You can sense the collective sigh of relief in the opening track. Following their electronic departure In This Light And On This Evening (which is in itself an excellent detour) it seems they've been diverted back to their roots; 'Weight' is a blistering opener reminiscent of their earliest work, yet richer and fuller in sound. The beats are noticeably classical in form allowing Tom's voice to cascade alongside the strings. The synergy of love and and death is a sinister approach that is well suited to Tom's ominous brooding voice. And so to the lyrics are earth-shatteringly epic: "Strike down on me" resonates at the end of the track as the instrumentation is pulled abruptly.

Cue the waspy bassline and lush lead guitar of 'Sugar', a sweet offering, again generous in atmosphere and sufficient in a certain cursed inevitability of love.

I have listened with pleasure to all of Editors music over the last eight years and have always found them satisfyingly unpredictable, and yet always thoroughly enjoyable. And this latest album is no different. I've been somewhat surprised by some of the negative reviews of this album, although tellingly even those who have berated the band for doing something different are still scoring them an average 4 stars (yes, it really is that good). My first listen was tinged with a worry that after the awesome 'In this light . . .' there was a risk they would get stuck in a doom laden rut, but no; in an album of love songs they still touch on death and the complexities of life in an intelligent and melodious manner. Standout tracks include 'What is this thing called love' where the lead singer Tom Smith proves that he really can sing, the foot-tappingly addictive 'Formaldehyde' and the wonderful album closer 'Bird of Prey'.
I can recommend this to anyone who is looking for an excellently produced, well crafted and intelligent indie rock album by musicians at the top of their craft. And hey, a little change is not always a bad thing!

I agree so much with those reviews that say this album improves with listens. I have all their albums and this is definitely the most consistently good across all tracks- their first two albums had stand out songs but the odd song you would skip. Their third, IMO, was not my favourite - at it's best, stunning (You Dont Know Love/The Boxer) but the extra tracks being noisy horrible affairs in contrast. This 4th album is much better- just a pleasure to listen and every track a masterpiece. You can tell it's been we'll honed over a longer period. My favourites being Sugar, The Phone Book and the bristling pop song Formaldehyde. Least favourite probably the slightly plodding Bird of Prey- good song but the drum track is a bit monotonous - could do with more breaks and work. The extra tracks are well worth buying- three v good strong melodic tracks + two instrumentals which add to the originals. There have been some good new CDs this year and this is one of my favourites.

One of my favourite albums. I love Editors. This is excellent. My OH thinks it's really depressing but I hear good things in the lyrics. It's an explosion of wonderful guitar riffs and excellent percussion that i am not yet tired of listening to and love more on every hearing. Works best when very loud and preceded by The End Has a Start and The Back Room respectively.
